Ball Culture Guide

Recently mentioned in The New York Times, the Ball Culture Guide: The Encyclopedia of Seed Germination has been a mainstay resource for growers since its introduction in 1989. Author Jim Nau provides in-depth germination and scheduling information for almost 400 of the most popular seed-grown floriculture crops. Written in an easy-to-read chart style, the Ball Culture Guide lists production temperatures, transplanting schedules, lighting requirements, growing-on tips, final garden height and much more, making it a must-have resource for anyone growing floriculture crops from seed.
